Most people in the Santa Monica community know me as Dr Jo. I'm the Executive and Artistic Director of this wonderful nonprofit called Elemental Music (legally known as "Elemental Strings").
I've been involved with this organization since our very first rehearsal in 2004, and seen close to 1,000 students participate in our programs over the years. It's been an absolute joy watching so many of our students grow through the programs, and then stay in touch with them as they continue on in middle school, high school, even college!
What we believe in is that the spark at the beginning of the learning process is what ignites the passion in children, often for a lifetime. That's why our programs focus primarily on elementary school-aged students. Our teachers are the best in the area, and I couldn't ask for better colleagues.
Please consider making a donation, large or small, to help our students. Over 250 students are enrolled in our programs this year, and we have awarded a LOT of scholarships to deserving students whose families cannot afford to pay the full amount.
Your donations will help us take care of these engaged and excited students for the entire year, and help me sleep a little better at night knowing we are getting closer to our fundraising goals!
Thank you and happy holidays!
